My name is Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. Conjure by it at your own risk. I'm a wizard. I work out of an office in midtown Chicago. As far as I know, I'm the only openly practicing professional wizard in the country. You can find me in the yellow pages, under Wizards. Believe it or not, I'm the only one there.With rent past due and a decent meal becoming an issue of some importance, Harry needs work, and soon. A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt. Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters to vampires, while he himself is under suspicion of the crimes. One thing is certain, if he can't stop whoever is on this killing spree, Harry will be the next victim.Written by New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher.Narrated by James Marsters (Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

Wow! Great start to the series. Good take on the noir, detective genre - love the storytelling of Butcher, the magic twist on the PI trope is well done, totally believable.
Downsides are the gender role stereotyping, we'll have to see how this issue goes in the rest of the series.

Had this series described to me as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer as a Wizard meets Sherlock," and absolutely had to read it. Enjoyed the first book, and am excited to move onto the second!

This book is fun. I have seen the tv series that was based on this book and the book is even better. Jim Butcher has created a modern day fantasy through magic and detective work.

Storm Front is a noir detective mystery, with a twist! Harry Dresden, detective, is also Harry Dresden, wizard. Setting the events in Chicago does give it a classic feel even though there's a lot of super-naturalism going on. The character of Dresden is that right mix of a troubled past, raw courage and an evolving morality. It's rewarding to follow along as he climbs out of the situations he ends up in.

I look forward to continuing the series. This book is a great start.

Yawn. I didn't care for this at all. From my perspective, 1 of 10 stars

“I'd made the vampire cry. Great. I felt like a real superhero. Harry Dresden, breaker of monsters' hearts.”

“Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean there isn't an invisible demon about to eat your face.”
